11:02pm
rig on know vat oh boulevard near sutro avenue. don knapp shows us what the investigators found at the scene. >> reporter: the chp says speed and maybe alcohol were factors in the violent crash that claimed one life, left two with major injuries, and two with the bmw minor injuries. all of those high schoolers. two of the injured taken to san bernadino hospital, the other to marin general. >> the bmw behind us lost control, into the path of a big rig, and was struck. >> the driver of the big rig was uninjured. a long line of skid marks indicates a tire blew out, officer loudon sails, the skid marks beginning at what appears to be an older roadside memorial for a motorcyclist. >> it was a crash. we did find alcohol beverage containers in or about the
11:03pm
vehicle but we have not determined it to be a factor yet. >> at novato high, some heard of the crash, but after a late in the day special teacher's meeting there what is no meeting of students. >> so he thinks he may know one or more of the victims. >> somebody i know had classes together, we would see each other every day, was involved in a horrible car accident. doesn't make me feel that well. >> after school parents said they were learning about the crash. >> i heard that one of the students was killed and, umm, we're all just very, very concerned for the family and, umm -- >> like a parents' worst nightmare, right. >> absolutely, absolutely. >> it's not been confirmed that alcohol played a role in the fatal crash. an ferguson says last year the school had a realistic simulation of drunk driving. >> they had the whole presentation for everyone and the kids spent a night in jail and in the hospital and this is
11:04pm
exactly what happened so it's really really sad and my heart goes out to all the families. >> we don't know why the school didn't make an announcement of what happened to the injuries and deaths of the classmates today. perhaps they didn't have enough time. but word is spreading fast. students we talked to seemed to know about it. before the weekend is over everybody will know about it and the school will deal with it on monday. >> reel tragedy. don knapp in know vat oh. pg&e is now admitting it new as long as a year ago about the presence of liquid at the terminal that feeds pipeline 132, that's the one that exploded in san bruno, industry experts say standing liquids like water and compress or oil can foster the growth of mike robes which actually can cause significant corrosion inside pipelines. pg&e fixed the problem at the milpitas problem but never checked for internal corrosion in line 132. >> due to the shape, again, of
11:05pm
the pipeline and the changing diameter of the pipeline the end line inspection wasn't the most appropriate, method wasn't the most effective method, for tasselingment of pipeline. >> it's possible the liquid could have been one of the many contributing factors that caused the explosion. meanwhile state regulators are calling on pg&e to make public the complete list of the 100 highest risk pipe segments in the bay area. that could happen this weekend. adding insult to injury, they warned people near the blast zone of a new danger, julia goodrich shows us it's a threat that needs to be addressed immediately is. >> a potential toxic hazard. cruz have been busy cleaning soot from hup homes and wetting down mounds of ash so the wind doesn't scatter it into the air. a another big concern, the upcoming rainy season. pushing contaminated run off
11:06pm
into the san francisco bay. >> if we get half of the rain we had last year with the el niño that is going to be definitely a problem and it's going to be very difficult to contain it so at this point we're not concerned about to go six. however, unless we're able to get out there quickly that may become a concern. >> peterson says the county has already moved 1050-gallon drums of hazardous waste from the burn site. and sandbags have been placed around storm drains leading to the san brown oh creek. an october 15-t deadline has been set to clear all the waste before the heavy rains roll in. >> where are the toxic levels and is there a concern. >> we're concerned about air quality, we're concerned about dust goin' off the site, so we're watering the site down. >> reporter: a fence has been put up to keep residents out of the fire zone and those allowed in can only stay for a few hours because of the potential health risk. >> we have been giving them all of the personal protective equipment, masks, clothes,
11:07pm
gloves, eye glasses. >> reporter: the clean-up costs about $1.5 million paid by homeowner's insurance and the state. and while the race is on to remove the debris, many residents are still trying to grasp what happened to their homes and lives, and where they go from here. >> i'm just trying to take it day by day, we lost a lot of neighbors here so right now it's kind of, it's a sad time for us, so we're just trying to get this neighborhood back together. >> reporter: and for many of the residents here the clean-up effort is a daunting task. the county says it will do everything it can to help residents get back on their feet and help them clean up their homes. in san brown oh juliette goodrich, cbs5. for the latest on the investigation as well as maps to show you if pipelines may be running in your neighborhood you can go to our web site, cbs5.com, click on "links and numbers." >> when a rape suspect was arrested police hoped a series
11:08pm
of assaults at a bay area apt complex would be over. well, that's not the case. there is now a fourth reported assault at the park regency apartments atwal nut creek, all within the past two months, a berkeley man is jailed on charges related to the three previous cases. well, now, police think they are dealing with yet another rape suspect. >> i was sleeping a lot easier, now i'm just again sleeping with one eye open and one eye closed. >> i'm scared to walk alone. >> i'm a young man, i'm not even 20 yet, but i'm scared. >> apartment managers say there are at least two security guards on duty 24 hours a day. they have also put in a request for upgrade ed surveillance cameras. >> a new area where you eat at your own risk and popping up around the bay area. why the chefs at this latest underground market might be taking some risks too. robert? >> well, ken, redskins ripe.
11:09pm
i want you to consider this. there is a line in the movie that says "if you build it they will come," but that perhaps needs to be changed. to"if you tweet it they'll come by the hundreds" and what are they coming to do? well eat in a parking lot. this type of asphalt lining is growing in popularity, growing in san francisco and now pock marked all around the bay area. but everything that you see here, all this dining in the parking lot, is actually illegal. but it has stopped nothing and no one. they call themselves the underground market, chefs and would be chefs driven underground they say by the high cost of brick and mortar restaurants, so, for months, they fired up the burners from parking lots from san francisco to oakland. the foodies even hang over retaining walls waiting for organic barbecue, french tacos and gourmet ice cream cones. >> and sold out within three hours. >> reporter: but what really
11:10pm
makes all of this underground is none of it is legal so eat at your own risk. >> we have had run-ins before where in the city the cop says "you can't be here," but can you just move somewhere else. >> reporter: in seems the curbside chefs hope to blend into a bit called zero 1. but police weren't allowing them to dine and, a county health inspector was called out, so was the fire marshal. but oh what a tangled web we we have when, first, we practice to deceive. >> we didn't include 24 in the information we gave to the county. we just gave an overall assessment of the activities, it will include specifically this activity. >> isn't that kind of circumventing the law. >> roof laverty is is a producer of the bigger event. they came from producers, it not only says no tents, which violates the laws for farmer's markets, chefs were charged 50 bucks or 10% of total profits
11:11pm
for tonight. shocking for an event producers admit is illegal. >> we're told this type of thing is not allowed in san jose county but we knew it happens in other places in the underground. so we thought try it out to see what happens. >> you were trying to go rogue. >> yeah, trying to go rogue. >> san jose police kept this place shut down until 2 hours ago. why are people still standing in line after 11:00? well it seems that the producers convinced both the inspectors for the health department and the fire marshal that this was a private members- only event and so the people are standing in line, all they have to do is use a wristband and sign a waiver that they won't sue assuming they become ill from what they eat here, and they can continue to eat until their heart's delight. ken? >> take your chances, grab your food, and go. >> and have a ball doing it. >> robert, thank you.
11:12pm
